Penfolds Reserve Bin 16a Chardonnay (2016)
If you want to push the boat out, this Penfolds should impress the guests.
The nose is welcoming with aromas of peach, pink grapefruit and apple, all underlined by a toasty creaminess, but it becomes wonderfully complex on the palate with bright citrus, apple, toasty spice, ripe tropical fruit and just a touch of buttered brioche. There’s also a nice saline quality to it, which should match up well with your pigs in blankets.
